easy read, I knew , and it proclaimed itself to be part comedy, part love story, part everything but the kitchen sink happily ever after turned upside down, inside out, and completely over the top

The font the words are printed in reminded me of the font from Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants easy read, I knew , and it proclaimed itself to be part comedy, part love story, part everything but the kitchen sink happily ever after turned upside down, inside out, and completely over the top Well, I don t know about all that, but it was an entertaining read a fairy tale with a modern, fun, whimsical feel to it.I must admit I liked the first half of the story much better than the second half It seems that the first half is spent getting attached to the main characters in the story Christian a runaway who is raised by a troll and Ed the aforementioned troll who can never get his cliches right and is obsessed with dethroning the Tooth Fairy and Marigold a cursed princess who becomes Christian s penpal I came to like them I loved their p mailing pigeon carrier mailing back and forth But then we don t get to spend any time with them in the second half of the book Peripheral characters mostly Marigold s dad and her triplet sisters get turned into main characters, too, so their stories have to be told and all the while Chris and Ed are in the dungeon, out of sight and out of mind My only guess as to why the king s and the sisters stories took the limelight was because they hadn t proven to be particularly sympathetic to Marigold in the past, and they needed to explain themselves so it would make sense when they band together to save her from the queen s evil scheme.But other than that complaint, I liked this book There was just the right amount of quirkiness and just the right amount of seriousness A quick, fun read This was a sweet pleasant fairytale like romance , but it was predictable and had some of the most famous cliches in fairytales , with some originality though The narration was fantastic Wonderful and orginal fairy tale And one that is not like any other fariy tale out there This is my second read It s just one of those books that you can t seem to put down, but not the kind that you can t stop thinking about Don t get me wrong, it s a wonderful book But..it s just a good story It s not something you can t get off your mind.There were some cheesy parts, but that s part of the charm of the book It s silly, crazy, touching and cheesy That s basically the novel in a n Wonderful and orginal fairy tale And one that is not like any other fariy tale out there This is my second read It s just one of those books that you can t seem to put down, but not the kind that you can t stop thinking about Don t get me wrong, it s a wonderful book But..it s just a good story It s not something you can t get off your mind.There were some cheesy parts, but that s part of the charm of the book It s silly, crazy, touching and cheesy That s basically the novel in a nut shell It s a wonderful fairy tale and deserves to be placed a long side the classic Princess tales made popular by Disney.I remember when I first read it basically two years ago , I LOVED it I rememeber that it was one of the best books I ve ever read I even had it on my 5 star list Well, since then I ve read even better books ex Golden Compass and it s companions and now that I ve read it for the second time, it s not worth 5 stars Don t get me wrong, I still really like this book I just don t think it s 5 stars any.Wonderful fairy tale love story crazy and cheesy book Anyone that loves a good story to take them away from the real world for a few hours, should read it My name is Christian I don t know what my last name is, because when I was five years old, I decided I d had enough with boring lessons about how to sip tea properly and wearing silly uncomfortable clothes all day So I ran away and that s how I met Ed Ed s my dad He found me hiding in the woods and tried to take me back to my parents, but I decided I liked Ed waythan them, so I tricked him into adopting me Oh, yeah, Ed s also a troll, and he pretends to be all grumpy and troll like m My name is Christian I don t know what my last name is, because when I was five years old, I decided I d had enough with boring lessons about how to sip tea properly and wearing silly uncomfortable clothes all day So I ran away and that s how I met Ed Ed s my dad He found me hiding in the woods and tried to take me back to my parents, but I decided I liked Ed waythan them, so I tricked him into adopting me Oh, yeah, Ed s also a troll, and he pretends to be all grumpy and troll like most of the time, but I know he s really just worried about being a good father to me We live in this cave in the forest, that s actually really comfortable, and Ed lets me do all the things I really care about Like inventing things I ve invented all sorts of useful things, like an elevator to bring water from the stream up to our sink Man, I do not know how people live without indoor plumbing Not even the people in the castle across the river have a flushing toilet like we do I can see that castle from my cave, I even came up with an invention, a kind of glass in a tube, that lets me see things up close that are far away I call it a tube glass Which brings me to another invention I came up with It s called p mail What s that, you ask Well, it s short for pidgeon mail I trained this fat little pigeon who lives in our cave to carry messages back and forth from the castle, because in that castle, there s this girl She s smart and funny, and loves to read books, just like me We p mail all day long, and I can talk to her about anything and everything Unfortunately for me, she s also the princess And a really unhappy princess at that Her three sisters all came out perfect and pretty and blond Not that there s anything wrong with that, but Marigold, that s my princess s name, is quiet and bookish and cursed You see, whenever she touches someone, she can see into their minds and know what they re thinking Which means that no one ever hugs her or even wants to be anywhere near her because they are afraid she ll know what s going on in their heads The end result is, she s got no friends, except for me, and I m pretty sure that her own mother the queen hates her.That mean old queen is a piece of work She s throwing this ball, and basically selling off her own daughter to any prince who ll take her And those princes and knights just want to marry Marigold for her money, they don t care that she s got a great smile, when she does smile, which isn t very often, or that her hair is the prettiest shade of brown, like rich mahogany Believe me, I ve been spying on some of these guys, and they re just a bunch of greedy Neanderthals And that s what brings us to why I m packing up all my worldly possessions and heading to the castle to find a job I m the only friend Marigold s got in the world, and if there is anything I can do to save her, then I ve gotta try This book was a bunny rabbit Cute, fluffy and made me want to snuggle Oh my goodness this was such an amazing book SO CUTE SO FUNNY SO GOOD It nails all the elements of a nice story, and has just enough action to keep things lively, but not so much that it becomes a super intense read which are great
